Quotes from CD-reviews

".. all brilliant stuff .. fast and definitely on the folky side without being any less punk .. shouty vocals that fit in perfectly with gang choruses ..  production is amazing .. all the instruments are clear as crystal .. lyrics are all pretty damn cool as well .. here is fifty minutes of some of the best celtic-punk you are going to hear this year I promise you” https://londoncelticpunks.wordpress.com/2016/04/25/album-review-bunch-of-bastards-my-drinkin-aint-done-2016/

“.. rich in variation .. about losing and about drinking .. all you need for a good night at the boozer .. recommended” (our translation from German) https://celtic-rock.de/bunch-of-bastards-my-drinkin-aint-done-2016/#more-16033

“.. followed their own way .. Pogues twist .. Sex Pistols inspired .. Real McKenzies feel .. fantastic songs .. excellent Celtic Punk anthems .. album packaging is a labour of love .. a highly recommendable album” http://celticfolkpunk.blogspot.nl/2016/05/2016-05-31-album-review-bunch-of.html

".. a nice debut from Bunch of Bastards .. band clearly wants to present something new and different inside the style .. and they did it!" http://www.folk-metal.nl/2016/05/bunch-of-bastards-my-drinkin/

BoB in UK sure was a blast

Our short trip to UK was a blast, meeting and staying with our distant yet close pal Paul Henshaw and playing three pub-gigs. We were invited back at each and even got free drinks, apparently rather rare in UK (more details here).
Strangely, we got invited to play Valencia on top.
Over the few next weeks, some of us will travel, but we will be back for a number of gigs from mid-June till mid-July (see under upcoming gigs).

CD My Drinkin' Ain't Done

So lads and lassies, our cd MY DRINKIN' AIN'T DONE is out there for you all to grab and enjoy. There is no song by that name, instead the title for our cd is taken from the lyrics of one of our songs. Soon, our tunes will soon also be available on I-tunes, Spotify and the like. Yet those interested in a beautiful hard copy with stunning artwork and with a lyrics booklet can buy it at our shows. It was sent of to some sites to be reviewed, we are looking forward, a bit nervously admittedly, to getting in some reviews.

BoB's St.Patrick'sDay / cd-release tour

So lads and lassies, with the writing, rehearsing, recording, mixing and mastering of songs as well as preparing artwork all are over and done with, and with printing, pressing and going online all in progress, we at BoB are proud and happy to annouce that we'll release our album MY DRINKIN' AIN'T DONE in mid March. The stunning beauty will be available at the four shows scheduled for the St Patrick's Day weekend (14 songs, lyrics booklet included, for a mere damage of 10 euro's).

The mayhem kicks off on St. Patrick's Day (March 17th, in case you didn't know) with a full show in Rockcafé Lazaru's in Leiden (showtime 21.00). Friday March 18th you can find us in De Nozem en de Non in Heemskerk (showtime 22.00). Saturday March 19th we travel south into Belgium for a gig in Ammehoela, Bree (showtime 22.00), and on our way back to our homes and normality, we will do a Sundayafternoonshow in The Mood in Dordrecht (showtime 17.00).

CU @ the bar !!

BoB songs now being mastered.

The 14 tracks BoB recorded recently have been mixed and are now being mastered. After first putting recording and mixing in the trusted hands of Theo Vogelaars (past member of Dutch rock legends Tröckener Kecks), we put the business of mastering in the equally trusted hands of Erik Dahlquist (past member of Sir Reg).

our UK pals for upcoming road trips

So here's a picture of Paul Henshaw and his Scientific Simpletons, the lads we will share two weekends on the road with in 2016, a January road trip into Germany and through Holland followed by a UK road trip early May.
